Based on your feedback from last week's post I've revised my ideas for the project. Although the composition book is a good concept the harsh realities of postage mean it's something to tackle down the road.
The proposed package will build on the one offered last year, pictured here. It featured the Miskatonic University patch, brass lapel pin, a postcard, and one of three different pocket journals.
For the new package I'd like to include a set of three journals. There are two options for what's included in the set- it can either consist of either three MU logoed journals or one each of the MU, Antarctic expedition, and Australian expedition. Whichever option is more popular is the one I'll go with, but be aware that getting one of each will slightly increase the printing costs.
The lapel pin will be upgraded from plain brass to full color cloisonne.
For the postcards I'd like to include three different designs, adding two new ones to the existing Orne Library card.
I have some other ideas for printed material and I'll have more information about that tomorrow. Part of today's to-do list includes putting together some mockups and seeing how much I can cram into an envelope without sending the postage through the roof.
As to the time frame for the project, I'm scheduling three weeks for another fund drive through Kickstarter, two weeks for the funds to clear through Amazon, and then five weeks for getting everything produced. Based on the production times for the Arkham Sanitarium project that's a realistic timeline, but it unfortunately means there's no way to guarantee everything will be done before the holidays. Assuming the fund drive starts next week the completion date falls around January 14th.
As always, your thoughts and comments are appreciated.
Update: Based on the comments so far it looks like three MU journals with the black on black style of the Arkham Sanitarium books are the way to go.
